Spring Has Sprung

We made it through the winter with not very much snow. Already there was a Sunday cruise at one of the local fast food restaurants which is pretty early here in the north east.
Its time to start thinking about dusting off the cars and enjoy the coming warm weather.

We offer a collection of classic car photos, 60s memorabilia, past and present car show photos, and anything unique to the 60s decade, remember the 60s, muscle cars, cool music, and .35 cents a gallon gas?

Classic Cars and Electric Vehicles
There are now several completed conversions of classics from gas to electric. Search Google or YouTube for videos of classic cars converted to electric.
EV Corvette Stingray E-Ray
Another trend is the change from gas to electric in some of our traditional performance cars. Examples are the Mustang Mach-E performance SUV and the Corvette. In the next several years, we'll see an electric motor-driven Stingray with 1000hp  and an proberly an SUV version.

Stay tuned; electric vehicles are here to stay.

Classic Cars
Will classic cars remain collectable? Is the interest in these cars a passing phase of the older generation, and baby boomers? Will phrases like 3-deuces, dual quads, 4-speed, high-test gas, muscle cars, land yachts, and hot rods, fade away? Will there be anyone left to appreciate all the unique styling features, chrome everywhere, fins, hard tops, vinyl tops, fast backs, and muscle cars?

1969 Factory 427 Bel Air                                                 
Do you remember when you had multiple option choices when you placed an order to purchase a new vehicle, model, trim levels, choice of exterior and interior colors, performance packages, and engine / transmission options.
Those were the days!

Is there another generation to pick up where we leave off, or will these cars end up abandoned in garages and junk yards?
 
The younger car enthusiasts seem more interested in the 2000-era performance cars and trucks to personalize and customize. With small engine displacements, high horsepower, computerized engine tunes, sophisticated electronics, high performance, and decent gas mileage it's hard not to appreciate these vehicles.

I cannot help but remember all the restored model T’s and A’s that were all the rage when I was growing up, now they seem to be all but forgotten. Is there a future for our classic 50s and 60s cars?

First Aid Kit for My C2 Corvette
You’re out cruising on Sunday in your classic is it always on your mind that you might break down, and what would you do? No parts are available, it’s Sunday, and it looks like your only option is to get call a flatbed service to get it home. Most of these old classic cars have belts, hoses, points, condensers, distributor caps, rotors, and ignition coils that are way past their prime, and these are the parts that are most likely to fail and leave you stranded.  

Only if you had the parts and tools. Even if you were lucky enough to be close to a local auto parts store some of these parts are becoming difficult to get, which further complicates the problem.

I decided to put together an Emergency Parts kit to deal with this, and if nothing else it gives me the chance of getting it going instead of sitting there waiting for help. Keep in mind I wasn’t looking for NCRS original parts, but good quality new parts to get me going. I sourced most of them from Amazon and eBay and for about $100 this is what I purchased:
Alternator belt
      • Water pump belt
      • Ignition coil
      • Points and condenser
      • Assorted hose clamps
      • ½ drive socket set
      • Set of wrenches
      • A couple of screwdrivers
      • Pliers
      • Vice grips
      • Feeler gauge
        • Electrical tape
          • Box of assorted screws and bolts

      All this fits in an inexpensive 24” plastic toolbox.

      Classic60s
      Is it Classic, Antique, or Muscle Car
      Brass Era
      This is an American term and generally refers to automobiles that were manufactured between 1896-1915. Known as the "Brass Era" because of the brass radiators, headlights, and other trim. They are also referred to as the “Horseless Carriages”.

      Antique              
      There are different definitions as to what defines an antique car. The Antique Car Club of America defines an antique car as any car over 25 years old. However, definitions for registration requirements vary from state to state. The antique car era includes the Brass era, Veteran era, and cars up to the 1930s. Later years are often referred to as Classic cars.



      Classic
      A Classic car is defined as an “older car” generally at least 25 years old. Most collectors also feel it must have historical  interest to be called a “Classic”. Historical interest is a very broad term, it can mean anything from a 50s Ford to a Chevy pickup. Today most all 50s, 60s, and 70s cars can be called classics. This is most evident at all the local car shows and the variety of cars that are on display.
